OMAHA (DTN) -- Firm early support quickly stepped into the livestock market with nearby live cattle and feeder cattle futures holding 30 to 50 cent per cwt gains. The most aggressive support has developed in the lean hog complex with nearby contracts holding triple-digit gains. This support could help to draw additional interest into the entire livestock market through the holiday-shortened week. Traders are also looking for additional direction from meat values in order to give evidence of the potential for stronger retail market support through the upcoming holidays.
